Its fascinating that in the late 70's almost all of the tenements disappear, since if Robert Moses had his way they would have anyway in the 50's. I bet the Rivington School artists used this space frequently, though I seem to remember hearing that there was some sort of zen garden type art piece there in the 80's and its driving me crazy that I can't find a link.....(ok, found it. It was on the other side of the street from this animation. Adam Purple's Garden of Eden must have been beautiful in an otherwise burnt out LES.)
